Score 8.0/10
Good points:
I've had a few of these washers in different houses and was happy to stick with the brand.
Bad points:
Installation instructions were awful. If I hadn't installed one before I would have had a right job.
As it was the process isn't actually that difficult.

Score 1.0/10
Good points:
Quite a good machine when it works
Bad points:
The machine broke down 3 times in 10 months with the sump of the machine filling with water and triggering an anti flooding switch making the machine inoperable. After 3 repair engineer visits Beko agreed to exchange the machine. Now after another 10 months the new machine has the same fault. This seems to be a design fault.

The installation of the machine is quite difficult with very flimsy mechanisms for lowering the height of the back legs.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Much better than our previous machine which from memory cost as much. Good build quality and I like the racking which you can change to suit you needs. It also has a good range of varied programs which are previous machine didn't have and we generally use the 58 minute 'quick and clean' program everyday and it copes very well.
Bad points:

Ian, Richmond Busy mum or dad

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
The adjustable shelf height is most useful and has been a key feature up to now. Flattening the top plate/cup holders is also very useful for larger pots when the bottom shelf is full. The dishwasher is very quiet and you barely know that it is on when in operation, compared to the many other dishwashers that we have owned.
Bad points:
The cycle times are generally good and the choice of operations, however some more stubborn staining presents a challenge and this sometimes means you may have to wash an item more than once, however this is true of many dishwashers.

Michael, Huddersfield Frequent user

Score 3.0/10
Good points:
Bad points:
Drying performance is terrible even on cycles that including drying. I've no idea how it achieved its drying rating. Our old dishwasher with much lower drying rating was far better at drying than this beko.

No separate drying cycle. Why not?

Heating element broke after a year thankfully within warranty. Not at all confident about the long term reliability of this purchase.

Due to Beko's response to design faults with another Beko appliance I have no confidence that Beko are interested in supporting their customers. I suggest you avoid Beko appliances.
